Samson is an accident-prone, nerdy, neat freak, and luckless guinea pig who wears large spectacles. He has terrible luck, is easily hurt and is known as the "Camp Whimp" and, in later seasons, is occasionally pushed around by some of his fellow campers. Due to his numerous physical weaknesses, he has an assortment of "health buddies" named "Nasal Allergy Buddy", "Asthma Buddy", "Foot Fungus Buddy", "Eyeball Buddy and "Skin Rash Buddy". He doesn't consider himself to have any real friends at Camp Kidney, although he is a relatively social camper and seems to be friends with nearly everyone in Camp Kidney as he is seen with a variety of other Bean Scouts. When social, he is usually seen with Edward, only to sometimes be pushed around by Edward's dominating personality. When upset or agitated, he will repeatedly say "merp" or "nerts" (an onomatopoeia for a noise guinea pig makes). He is part of the Fava Cabin along with Dave and Ping-Pong and is the postmaster for both of the scouts' camps; he picks up mail at the main post office in Prickly Pines before delivering it to either Acorn Flats or Camp Kidney. Samson also seems to have some sort of rivalry with Raj, the two had a bitter argument over who owned a hot spring; later they decided to share it. Sampson have also has trouble when it comes to being noticed or not being interrupted while speaking, to such extremes he is known as "Camp Kidneys most unnoticable camper." Sampson is also the victim of a running gag in the series where he will be randomly hit in the face by a volleyball that flys out of nowhere and knocks him down.
